A Nostalgic Look for Your Traditional Hot Rod Build

We take a lot of things for granted these days when building a hot rod. So many things that had to be sourced used or from other vehicles back in the heyday are now available as perfect modern copies. From body parts to interior, it is truly much easier to build a hot rod today in whatever style you desire.

A perfect example of this is the classic aluminum bomber seat. History is lost to who may have been the first to grab the seats from an old surplus WWII aircraft and bolt them into their car, but it was an extremely popular way to go back in the 1940s. The seats were lightweight (perfect for the burgeoning racing scene of the '40s), cheap, and looked pretty darn cool as well. Today, commonly referred to as "rat rod seats,"you can find recreations of classic aluminum bomber seats for sale in many styles and we offer a couple of great options for your build.

Traditional Looks with More Comfort

One thing vintage bomber seats were known for is that they did not usually provide a high level of comfort, even with the original bomber seat pads that came with them. Let us be real here, they were bare aluminum "butt buckets"designed to be as small and light as possible to fit in the cramped fuselages of military aircraft.

We have taken that original design concept to a fully welded seat hand formed from .090-inch aluminum sheet and added a 20-degree layback seat angle with a one-piece curved shell to create more comfortable bomber seats for those long drives we all love to take in our hot rods. Similar in design to our standard Aluminum Hot Rod Bomber Seats, this model has been lightened by removing material in the seatback and base with a series of 1-1/4-inch dimple die holes.

With an overall height of 21 inches and a 16 inch inside width these Lightened Aluminum Hot Rod Bomber Seats will fit most enthusiasts and provide hours of comfort on the road. For additional comfort we offer drop in bomber seat cushions in our seat bottom cushion kit and a great looking black tweed cloth snap in bomber seat cover that not only look sharp but work together very well. A .590-inch tubular rolled edge adds strength to the seat along with classic looks.

Classic Bomber Appearance That Fits Almost Anywhere

The universal mounting ability of our Lightened Aluminum Hot Rod Bomber Seats means they will go into just about any vehicle project you have in mind. There are no mounting holes pre-drilled, so your mind is free to determine the best method for mounting. You can fabricate your own mounts, or direct bolt the seat to your sheetmetal. We also offer a slick set of universal bomber seat mounting brackets that you can bolt, rivet, or weld to these seats once you have determined the best mounting height and angle for your application. A set of basic seat risers is another option that may work for your application as well.

If you are looking for something a bit more retro, we offer a more traditional aluminum bomber seat kit in a DIY kit that you rivet together yourself. Pick up a pair of any of our Aluminum Hot Rod Bomber Seats for your hot rod build today and be ready for your next long haul.
